“This collection features materials in so many colors and textures, we decided to match the nail color and finish exactly with the materials,” says Holly Falcone, the key nail artist at Priscavera. The almond shaped statement nails featured bold hues that included chartreuse and bright baby blue.

At Susan Alexandra, one of the standout nail looks featured a confetti pattern on a clear, square tip. “The ’90s were all about square nails in vampy colors, metallic greens and blues, confetti, and of course, a classic French Tip,” says Holly Falcone, the key nail artist for the show.

“The beauty looks for Ulla Johnson’s shows are always so fresh and sleek,” says Nadine Abramcyk, Tenoverten Co-Founder. For the designer’s spring/summer 2023 show, the models donned the shade Anne on their nails. “[It’s] a universally flattering pink for the ultimate buff-your-nails-but-better effect,” adds Abramcyk.

“I was inspired to create a chrome glaze jelly nail…which tied into Rebecca’s modern day women,” says Gina Edwards, the key nail artist for Rebecca Minkoff’s SS23 collection. “The all white color palette with bold embellishments worked perfectly with the highlighted crystal nail accents.”

Aprés Nail partnered with Sojinails to create the sleek manicures for Maisie Wilen’s Spring/Summer 2023 show. Some of the nail designs featured a peek-a-boo design—where one color is on the top of the nail and another shade is painted on the inside—for a modern twist.
